It’s ages since I had fun making a composite, as I have spent the last few months on writing a photography-related book. But last night, with only a programme on TV about jet planes (sorry, yawn, yawn) to compete for my attention, I made a start on something new. The subject is Claire and the background is in Devon.

Deciding on the different elements is a challenge. Backgrounds are difficult for me, as I never seem to have enough of them. Deciding when an image is finished is even more difficult…deciding if it any good, impossible. Perhaps all composites should therefore be considered to be a work in progress until they have been tried and tested.

I also felt a little out of practice and so it took me rather longer than usual to finish it and so I crawled into bed at an unearthly hour. Posting now to see what the reaction is.
